I know how to set the grid to resize the columns, easy part.  But I need it to remember the column sizing per user.  Would I have to store these values in a database table?

Has anyone had to do this before?

Thanks!

Hi,

One suggestion will be to get the width of the column while resizing and store the value in hidden element. You can access the value of the hidden input on the server side and store it to the DataBase.

ASPX:
     <input id="Hidden1" type="hidden"    runat="server" /> 

   <ClientSettings   AllowColumnsReorder="true" > 
                   <Resizing  AllowColumnResize="true"  /> 
                   <ClientEvents OnColumnResizing="ColumnResizing"  /> 
                </ClientSettings> 


JS:
<script type="text/javascript" > 
  function ColumnResizing(sender, eventArgs) 
  { 
  var input=document.getElementById('<%=Hidden1.ClientID %>'); 
  var colWidth=eventArgs.get_gridColumn().get_element().offsetWidth; 
  input.value=colWidth; 
        
  } 
  
</script> 


CS:
 // to access the width of the column from hidden input
 
string strval = Hidden1.Value; 
   // store the value in database 


Thanks
Shinu.
